Can you be more specific about what kernel driver(s) you are missing? Is latest
5.9 supporting this? Then please provide a reference (driver name, DT bindings
or even commit list).

Or are you referring to a feature of the vendor tree (linux-imx)? Then please talk
to NXP and ask about the status of this, if there is an upstream equivalent by
now or if this has been abandoned by them.

CIP has a strict upstream-first policy, so we can't take any downstream patches.
However, if a feature is upstream and only missed the latest CIP kernel, you can
propose backported patches for integration into that kernel. Preconditions:

- they are not invasive to other drivers or the kernel as a whole

- you are a CIP member, or the CIP member community supports the
backport (as it may increase our workload)
You may find the details of CIP kernel maintenance policies here [1] and here [2]



Thanks and Regards,
Rajashree Sankar
